    OK, here are 3 blocks of a huge quilt I'm making for my daughter. Do you think the colors look okay and not garish??? I had formally picked a light neutral background for the corners of the snowball but I thought it looked "washed out".

    What do you all think????

    Thanks in advance for your help!! :-)

    Sewjoyce,

    I like the color combo of your blocks.
    They compliment each other.

    And me, I think I've got some of your beige background - is it little navy stars all over?

    Yes it has little navy stars all over. I had just enough to cut out for the blocks unless I messed up. In which case, I'll be begging you to send me yours :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:

    Just holler Joyce, I'd be happy to, although it was only an FQ and I've already cut into it; think I bought it online from the UK so I'm sure I could find it again if you were stuck.

    You can't go wrong with red, white and blue in my opinion. Very pretty!

    It looks good. In the long run the darker colors will show soil less and the seam allowances don't bleed through color wise.
